@freemac

I haven't got real hardware at hand at the moment to check this out.

I just loaded the game in winape, I selected 2 players, then joystick option for player 1, I pressed joypad 1 button 2 for select, then selected keyboard for player 2, I selected R, T, 6, 5, G, F for LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN, FIRE, SELECT.

Both Joypads work in emulation like this, doesn't the same thing work on real hardware?

Now you say it it's all fine on MiST-board  :picard2:

Here is " GOLDEN AXE ", 2 Button / Joypad version.  8)

The game lets you use two joysticks, but it doesn't let you remap Joystick / Joypad 1 Button 2.

I've changed the game so you can use both buttons on both Joysticks / Joypads.

Another challenge : Psycho Pigs UXB - the second player stupidly has one life less against first player, could you correct that ? - that's a cool 2 player game but does lack because of that...

I've just had a look at the original disc and both cracked versions from cpc-power and it appears that both players start with 4 lives, therefore I'm not seeing the problem.  ???

The display at the top shows 3 lives each, but you get four lives, when the 3 lives in the display are gone, you are on your last life, which is your 4th.

I checked if the lives are the same when the game starts and it appears they are.

Player One lives = 03 @ 2418
Player Two lives = 03 @ 2419

The game does require a PLUS Keyboard fix I believe, maybe someone could check this out and fix it.
